Ms. Alita Sutherland

Greetings, I am Alita Sutherland, a Kindergarten teacher here at Junction Elementary. I live in Palo Cedro with my husband and 4 dogs (I love pugs!). I also have 2 grown children, a daughter and son. Through the years, I have taught at every grade level up through 8th grade.  I have found teaching to be the best job of all, and I am so proud of our school, staff and the children and families that come here.  In my classroom, we learn all day long.  I also try to create a warm, welcoming environment where children learn how to solve problems in a thoughtful way.  I have a science background, with a Single Subject credential in Biology.  I try to bring the "Scientific Method" into our classroom every day.  In other words, asking questions, trying to answer our questions and making mistakes (the answer wasn't what we thought!) means that we are learning. Please stop by Room 18 and say hello.
